I have been to Go Ape several times now and it’s always something I enjoy doing! It’s a great adventurous and adrenaline filled way to spend time outdoors. The Thetford Forest location is around 1hr 30 from where I am in Essex, so it’s a nice easy UK day trip for me! There are 34 different locations all around the UK (and 14 locations in the USA…including 6 across the Midwest!). Here’s what to expect when visiting the Go Ape Thetford Forest location!Continue reading “High Ropes Climbing & Zip Lining at Go Ape Thetford Forest – England, UK”
I’m going to make a bold statement and say that I think North Wales is the most adventurous place in the UK! It’s like a dream come true for outdoor adventure as well as having lots of other cool little villages and towns! In this post I share all the things to do in Snowdonia that I did during my week in North Wales.Continue reading “9 Awesome Things To Do In Snowdonia, North Wales”
If you had told me at the start of the year that my only summer holiday in 2020 would be 2 nights in my home county, I wouldn’t have believed you! I had a week in Tennessee, USA planned, along with a week in Portugal and 2 weeks in Zanzibar (Tanzania). As you can imagine, they all got knocked on the head. One was completely cancelled, one got rebooked and the third is in vouchers. So to give me some sort of a break, I booked a last minute 2 night glamping trip, literally 20 minutes from my house!Continue reading “2020 The Year of The Staycation: What My UK Mini Break Was Like”
Llandudno is a Victorian seaside town located in North Wales. North Shore Beach is large with a wide pedestrianised promenade. But there’s so much to do in Llandudno aside from the beach! A major geographical feature is the Great Orme headland, a limestone land formation which was once mined for copper (you can still visit the disused mine/cave). It’s also home to a herd of wild goats!Continue reading “7 Things To Do In Llandudno, North Wales”
On Monday 8th June 2020, the UK introduced a requirement for international travellers arriving into the UK to go into a 14 day quarantine. I travelled from Chicago USA landing in London Heathrow on Monday 15th June so therefore had to go through the motions. I have a feeling that it won’t be in place for long so I’ll be updating this post as and when things happen…if I wait 2 weeks until I publish, there’s a chance that it may not even be in place anymore!Continue reading “UK 14 Day Quarantine On Arrival: What It’s Like Travelling Into London Heathrow”
The colourful village of Portmeirion in Wales, UK was a project that started back in 1925 by the architect Clough Williams-Ellis. It looks like it’s been pulled right out of Italy and dumped on the Welsh coast! The village was a little like an art project, a creative outlet. To fund the project, he converted a building into a hotel which is still in operation today as the Portmeirion Hotel.
I’ve been a fan of Bear Grylls for a while now, I’ve read his book, watched his TV shows AND NOW there is a Bear Grylls Adventure experience at the NEC in Birmingham UK. I’m writing this 2 days after my visit and I’m still in pain…in a good way. Me and my sis did a couple of the ‘upgrades’, we had a full on day and I used a lot of muscles that I’m not sure I’ve ever used before, so they are currently in recovery mode!
